The 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship season 9 saw another action-packed year of exhilarating electric motor racing. This season we witnessed the debut of Gen3 cars, several E-Prix’s in new locations, and McLaren and Maserati joined the fight for the championship.
The On-site team is composed of 4 Project Managers and 7 Installation Managers who oversee the local crews, as well as vinyl specialists and carpenters. None of this would be possible without our behind-the-scenes team, Production and Logistics, whose work allows us to produce a seamless final product.
Here in London, we have delivered around 7.5 kilometers of track branding including vinyl & debris panels, 180 flags, up to 6km of scrim as well as a separate wayfinding project, media backdrops and Race Control. The team have also delivered multiple bespoke installations including bridges, gantries, team garages and hospitality fitouts.
A huge part of our company culture revolves around sustainability, values that are embodied by Formula E. This is why a large portion of our installations are made up of recyclable materials and reusable items, with the team able to push the dial on sustainability in the following areas:
- 70% of flags are being reused
- 90% of scrim is being reused
- 1800+ metal structures are being reused (backdrop frameworks, flag structures, and wayfinding structures)
- 27.6% waste recycled; 11.4% went to energy recovery
- Trialled a recycling supplier that turns plastic into building blocks – sent 1.12 tonnes of plastic waste which helped create ~6000 concrete blocks
- Our containers travelled 117,999.18km by sea
- For Season 10, we are reusing 701 flags, 610 flag structures, 226 framework structures, 1013 wayfinding structures, and 20km of scrim
“I have now completed my second season on the Formula E account and since then have got the opportunity to work at 9 different race locations. Working on this particular account is special as you get the chance to learn about different cultures and understand how other suppliers may choose to operate. A highlight for me in season 9 was having the opportunity to travel to Cape Town which was a new race location for Formula E. The stunning scenery overlooking the race track and incredible food was an experience that I will never forget! With this being a new venue it was an incredible achievement to of installed over 140 flags, 63 Wayfinding items and 15 backdrops with a variety of sponsors and hospitality designs. Moving into season 10 I am looking forward to new race locations and many more exciting challenges.” Jasmin Cornish – FE Project Manager
“I have managed the Formula e account since September 2014, having been involved in the delivery of all 116 races. We have now completed Season 9 which was the most challenging I can remember, with 4 new venues, 3 of these in a row; Hyderabad, Cape Town & Sao Paulo which was extremely demanding for all of the team. The CSMlive project team overcame many problems and late requests during the season, along with dealing with some extreme weather conditions. This season as with all previous years the team worked hard and delivered to a very high standard with a great attitude and attention to detail. They should all be very proud of what they have achieved.” Graham Woolmer – Project Director, Formula E Team
